If Vidya Balan insists on harking back to the bygone era with each Sabya-designed ensemble (its essentially a prolonged Maharani Gayatri Devi hangover),Sonam Kapoor and Freida Pinto (pic on right) are saving the day on the red carpet at the Cannes de Festival. The two ladies seemed to have got it right with their appearances on Day 2 of the movies and glamour extravaganza. Kapoor was togged out in a voluminous white Dolce & Gabbana gown with bold floral prints that she coupled with a Sunita Kapoor necklace and printed pumps. Pinto attended the François Ozon-directed Jeune & Jolie screening in a glamorous gild web gown custom designed by Indian fashion designer Sanchita Ajjampur.
Not to rest on its laurels,the next big event to look out for will be when the French Minister of Culture,Ms Aurelie Filippetti will confer the award of Chevalier dans lordre des Arts et des Lettres (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters) on filmmaker Anurag Kashyap at a ceremony on May 20.
